Awesome show! I manged to get a last minute seat in the front row. Very lucky, as this is likely one of the last chances to see him live on stage. Gallagher performed for over 2 hours, with jokes and social commentary. There was a lot of audience interaction, and a few people were called on stage to help perform bits. Much of his humor is improv, and Gallagher was constantly ad libbing jokes.. He's the definition of the term "old pro".
Naturally, he smashed a few grocery carts worth of food and not just watermelons. Birthday cakes, pie plates full of mashed potatoes and rice, syrup, mayo, etc. About a dozen audience members came onstage and took turns using the sledge-o-matic. By the end, I was fairly covered head to toe in food, mostly on the plastic poncho and bags provided.
I definitely got the impression that his onstage personality is real, not just an act. He even got misty eyed for a moment when someone in the crowd thanked him for his career. Gallagher lost his train of thought briefly, took a few questions from the audience, then continued his act.
Overall a great show. Gallagher's a class act, there's no other show like his. Let's hope he comes back sometime.
